We're here in the middle of the small town of Glenside, PA, to check out this building that I suspect was previously a grocery store. Of course, I don't know that for a fact, but JoshAustin610 lists an A&P at 132 S Easton Rd in Glenside from 1953 to 1964. Well, I don't see any building at 132 that's obviously a former A&P, but especially given this building's apparent similarity to the American Family Market in Narberth (a former A&P), I think it's possible 123 was incorrectly transcribed at some point as 132. That said, 136 S Easton Road also looks a fair amount like a former A&P, and the building where 132 would be appears to be much newer than the 1950s so it's possible either 136 was the A&P, or 132 is long gone.
Either way, this building looks a lot like a former grocery store and, at 7800 square feet, it's right around the right size for a 1940s or 50s era supermarket. Glenside does still have a small supermarket downtown, so we'll be heading there next tomorrow on The Independent Edition!
